Bright Idea Deck

Written by Mark McElroy

With its business-oriented art work (by Canadian artist Eric Hotz) and distinctively 1990’s vibe, this brainstorming deck — really, a “Tarot deck that didn’t look like a Tarot deck” — puzzled people at first. Ultimately, though, it found an audience that passionately loved it.

Long out of print, this deck (and its companion book, Creative Brainstorming with the Bright Idea Deck) regularly sells for over $125 when found on eBay and similar sites. Buyer beware! Some unscrupulous sellers are offering just the companion book (and no cards!) at that price.

I'm a writer and professional facilitator. I'm the author of a dozen or so non-fiction books and hundreds of corporate video scripts. As a professional facilitator, I coach individuals, committees, and teams to change how they meet, make decisions, and plan, so they can get out of their own way and do work that really matters. I use this site to write about writing, adaptive strategy, travel, and spirituality ... and to "learn out loud" by sharing works (and what doesn't).
